03:54 GMT - President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in Antalya for the G20 summit, said he country was sharing France's pain.
"I want to emphasise that we are sharing the same pain as the people of France."

03:58 GMT - A list of the sites attacked:
Bataclan concert hall
A full house of 1,500 people were packed into the popular venue in eastern Paris for a concert by the US band Eagles of Death Metal. About an hour after the band took to the stage, the whole concert hall was turned into "a bloodbath" according to a French radio reporter at the scene. Black-clad gunmen wielding AK-47s stormed into the hall and fired calmly and methodically at hundreds of screaming concert-goers.
Stade de France
Three loud explosions were heard outside France's national stadium during the first half of a friendly international football match between France and Germany. At least five people died outside the glittering venue which staged the 1998 World Cup final with several others seriously hurt.
Rue de Charonne
A little further east on Rue de Charonne 18 people were killed, with one witness saying a Japanese restaurant was the main target. "There was blood everywhere," the witness said.
Pierre Montfort lives close to a Cambodian restaurant on Paris' Rue Bichat, a little further north, was the scene of another attack. "We heard the sound of guns, 30-second bursts. It was endless. We thought it was fireworks," he said.
Rue de la Fontaine au Roi
A few hundred metres (yards) from the Bataclan, the terrace of the Casa Nostra pizzeria was targeted. Five people were killed by attackers wielding automatic rifles, according to witness Mathieu, 35.
A judicial source said one of the attackers exploded his suicide vest on the Boulevard Voltaire, near the Bataclan. It is not yet known if there were any injuries from the explosion.
03:27 GMT - President Francois Hollande and his US counterpart Barack Obama spoke on the phone and vowed to reinforce counter-terrorism efforts after Friday's attacks, said a member of the French leader's team.

04:23 GMT - Superstar Irish band U2 cancels a show planned for Paris on November 14.
"As a result of the ongoing state of emergency across France, the U2 Paris concert scheduled for 14th November will not be going ahead as planned," the ban says on their website.

We are devastated at the loss of life at the Eagles of Death Metal concert and our thoughts and prayers are with the band and their fans. And we hope and pray that all of our fans in Paris are safe.”
05:07 GMT - Friday's attacks are the deadliest in Europe since the Madrid train bombings in March 2004. Below are the seven deadliest attacks in Europe in decades.
January 7-9, 2015, France: Two gunmen storm the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo's Paris offices. They kill 12 people before fleeing. A policewoman is killed just outside Paris the next day in a shooting investigators later link to the Charlie Hebdo attack. A gunman takes hostages at a Jewish supermarket, four of whom are killed. The Charlie Hebdo attackers and the hostage-taker are killed in separate shootouts with police.
July 22, 2011, Norway: A right-wing extremist, Anders Behring Breivik, kills eight people in a bomb attack outside a government building in the capital Oslo and later murders another 69 people -- most of them teenagers -- when he opens fire at a Labour Youth camp on the island of Utoya.
July 7, 2005, Britain: Four coordinated suicide attacks at rush hour on three underground lines and a bus leaves 56 dead and 700 wounded. The attacks were claimed by Al-Qaeda.
March 11, 2004, Spain: A dozen shrapnel-filled bombs explode on four commuter trains heading for Madrid's Atocha station, leaving 191 dead and about 2,000 injured. The coordinated attacks were claimed by militants who said they had acted on Al-Qaeda's behalf in retaliation for Spain's involvement in the US-led invasion of Iraq.
August 15, 1998, Britain: A car-bomb explodes in Omagh, a small town in Northern Ireland, killing 29 people and wounding 220. The attack is claimed by the dissident wing of the Irish Republican Army.

"In the name of the Iranian people, who have themselves been victims of terrorism, I strongly condemn these crimes against humanity and offer my condolences to the grieving French people and government."
05:33 GMT - AFP reporter Brigitte Dusseau says there was a small demo with about 50 people in New York's Union Square, with demonstrators drawing a huge Eiffel Tower in a peace sign on the ground.
The organisers told AFP a bigger one is expected tomorrow at 2:00 pm local time at the same location.
05:47 GMT - "This time it's war," the Le Parisien daily declares as French media reacts with horror after Friday's attacks.

06:23 GMT - Dozens of people waited in line at Charles de Gaulle airport outside of Paris for police checks at the border before going through airport security for their flights. Announcers ask people to keep an eye out for any "unusual events."
06:53 GMT - Alongside expressions of support and sadness, social media has been a place to find safe haven and reassurances after the attacks. But others are using it to search for loved ones who have not yet checked in.
"If anyone has news of Lola, aged 17, at #Bataclan this evening, contact us," reads one post, while another expresses concern for a friend Thibault, who was also at the concert. "He's not getting back to me: help me."
Other Twitter feeds remained ominously silent after announcing the start of the concert at the Bataclan concert hall, where at least 82 people were later killed by gunmen wielding AK47s.
The #PorteOuverte (open door) hashtag was re-posted 480,000 times as the hours passed with the city on lock down, making it the second-most used keyword on Twitter in France after #fusillade (shooting) which was used 700,000 times.
"If people are stranded, I can accommodate two of three people on Rue des Martyrs," offered one user, while WroteGabDeLioncourt said: "Our sofa is always available for two/three people in Maraichers".
Others set up an emergency website "porteouverte.eu" to help people find temporary shelter.
07:02 GMT - About 500 people assembled late Friday under a light rain in Montreal to honour the victims of the deadly Paris assaults, carrying signs that read "We will not retreat," and "We will defend our values."

The crowd softly sang the French national anthem, "The Marseillaise" and observed a moment of silence in remembrance of those who died.
07:31 GMT - The horrific attacks in Paris on Friday night carry sombre echoes for Mumbai residents of a bloody series of killings in their own city seven years ago.
A total of 166 people were killed in November 2008 when Islamist gunmen stormed luxury hotels, the main railway station, a Jewish centre and other sites in the booming metropolis.
"Anger is filling up inside me again as the pictures, the videos and the social media chats make me relive the horror of that night even more graphically," said Sourav Mishra, who was injured in the November 26 attacks.
07:46 GMT - Saudi Arabia's foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir joins global condemnation of the attacks, calling them a "violation of all religions".
"I wanted to express our condolences to the government and people of France for the heinous terrorist attacks that took place yesterday which are in violation and contravention of all ethics, morals and religions," he told reporters in Vienna.
07:59 GMT - Security experts had predicted for months that a huge attack was imminent in France and would be nearly impossible to thwart -- and on Friday evening that nightmare scenario became a reality.
"Determined guys who are prepared to die, who have studied their target and have a solid operational background, they can do a lot of damage," Yves Trotignon, who used to work for DGSE intelligence agency's anti-terrorist service, told AFP in a recent interview.
"More jihadist fighters are graduating as veterans every day. Faced with that, it has to be said, the (security) services are overwhelmed," he said.
